Eric McCandless/CBSBeyonce wants to help the world get healthier. The singer has announced a business partnership with exercise physiologist Marco Borges to launch 22 Days Nutrition, a home-delivery meal service that provides plant-based food.
Beyonce herself is no stranger to a vegan lifestyle — she and husband Jay Z previously committed to a 22-day vegan diet during the winter of 2013. After completing the challenge, the singer, who trains with Borges, continued to include more plant-based foods in her everyday diet.
“I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example,” says Beyonce in a statement. “He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can. I am excited to partner with him.”
“I am humbled by this incredible partnership and excited to share the many benefits of a whole-foods plant-based diet,” says Borges.
The home delivery program provides three plans to choose from, all of which include organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free ingredients. Meals range from $9.76 to $16.50 each and can be ordered via 22DaysNutrition.com.
